going to Tulcea from Galati by boat

by supune

Hi,

I need information on if it is possible to go from Galati to Tulcea by boat. How long will it take? Is there a ferry?

My first 2 trips will be to Tulcea and Black Sea

Here is my plan. I want to start on Saturday Sept 4th, 2004:
take train to Galati and then work my way down to Tulcea (bus? ferry?). Spend the night in Tulcea and find a boat tour of the delta. Then, take the train to Constant and spend a day there. head back to Bucharest through Medgidia

Is this a good idea? is it better to do it the other way( bucuresti to constanta, then Constanta to Tulcea (via Medigidia). find a way to Galati or Braila and come back to Bucharest by train.

what I'm not sure of is how easy or hard it is to go from Galati or Braila to Tulcea (or vice versa).

thanks for your advice.

There are vans going from both Galati and Braila to Tulcea. However it would be easier to organize things the other way around, as in Tulcea all vans start from one point and it is easier to track things, especially not speaking the language. So you can go from Bucharest to Constanta by train, then take a train to Tulcea with a change in Medgidia (or a van directly, but they are as uncomfortable as one can get), then a van (there is no other way except for making a huge detour by train) to Galati / Braila and then a train to Bucharest. At present there are no ferries from Galati / Braila to Tulcea. Your trains are like this:

Bucuresti Nord Gara A - Constanta - Train no.
05.55-08.54 A1681
07.00-09.31 IC581
08.45-11.33 R681
14.30-17.12 IC583
17.35-20.33 R683
19.45-22.40 R685

Constanta 07.17 - Medgidia 08.01 P8202
Medgidia 08.52 - Tulcea 11.18 IC587 (working only on Fri, Sat, Sun)

Constanta 16.05 - Medgidia 16.54 P8042
Medgidia 17.04 - Tulcea 20.39 P8653

Constanta 17.40 - Medgidia 18.25 P8342
Medgidia 19.37 - Tulcea 21.54 IC589

Galati - Braila - Bucuresti Nord Gara A - Train no.
05.45-06.16-09.13 IC572
05.05-05.50-11.09 P7002
12.00-12.31-15.28 IC574
17.30-18.07-21.16 A1672
18.10-18.41-21.38 IC576
23.58-00.48-06.08 P7012

In Tulcea the bus station lies just next to the train station, along the river. In Constanta buses to Braila / Galati / Tulcea / Bucharest go from near the railway station. In Braila buses start from near the railway station, while some odd vans start from near central Traian Square. In Galati the bus station lies on the crossing of Ana Ipatescu with Dogariei, but, as always in Romania, some vans start from the railway station.

Best regards and have a nice trip,
Alex

Travel Tips for Galati

Getting around..

by CTrandafir

Getting around Galati is easy with the hundreds of maxi taxis which trawl the city. They are numbered by the routes and have designated stops but if you can figure this out then you just jump on and jump off at your stop and hand the driver your money which is normally about 1 leu. Very cheap. Most play music, sometimes a bit on the loud side but this makes for a relaxing journey.
